Nutty Lemon Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
A very good recipe made exactly as written but, for us, absolutely no lemon extract. If I am supposed to use lemon in a cake then it is lemon zest. Using pure vanilla in this cake gives excellent flavor.

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
This is one of our favorite blueberry muffin recipes because we prefer the use of butter rather than oil. This method gives more of a cake like muffin, keep well and do not dry out. Also, which is a pleasant change, they are not oversweet. Agree with the reviewer that suggested extra lemon zest......better with blueberries for our taste than vanilla. No changes or substitutions necessary in this recipe. Thanks for a reliable recipe that always receives compliments.

Strawberry-Citrus Shortcake

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Excellent pound cake base for strawberries. Do use cake flour because there really is no good substitute. As to complaints about it being dry this was not a problem here. Also liked the tangy topping which, as recipe stated, just stir together. Makes a very nice change from whipped cream. Much to prefer this cake type base for fruit than the popular biscuit type. Thanks for submitting...highly recommend if made exactly as written.

Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Bread

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
This is one of the better pumpkin breads and really does not need to be changed. I do cut back on sugar but that is a matter of taste. Love the addition of cranberries and orange - the orange takes it over the top.

Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Wonderful recipe for lemon curd. This is not all that well known here but so great on scones and as a filling for cakes. Also makes lovely tarts with a dollop of whipping cream on top. The possibilities are endless.

Unbelievable Grilled Garlic Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This is probably one of the best breads of its type on this site and have been making it for several years. Also have served it in appetizer size and there never seems to be enough. Highly recommend. P.S. you can also play around with different cheeses to suit your taste.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Deserves more than 5 stars......also the topping can be used for other upside down cakes. This is probably the best I have found......

Delightful Apple Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Very good but butter makes the difference. These are actually more like a cupcake than a muffin - they are rich and the texture more cake like. Could be iced and served as a dessert snack.

Orange Blossom Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
This recipe also brings back memories because my mum used to make it. One of our favorite cakes and keeps moist for ages. A great cake to have for drop ins with a cup of tea or coffee. Try not to substitute shortening, oil or margarine for the butter.

Lemon Lovers Luscious Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Such an easy recipe and we love lemon curd in or on anything - that is the British in me. Do have a few changes that I feel are an improvement and that is to not use lemon extract - the lemon rind is enough and does not taste artificial. Also, if you have the time, please make your own lemon curd.........much better than the jarred stuff. Thanks for a great dessert otherwise.

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
To us these premade pie crusts just makes for a very thick crust so the reviewer who suggested rolling them thinner has the answer. Nothing worse than a pie with a thick crust. Actually when I was taught how to make pies you were supposed to have the crust so thin you could see thru it. This is a good basic recipe but much too sweet for us and also suggest you use only granny smith apples.

Miracle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
As written there is just too much soy for us and we find it does not need the sweetner nor the cornstarch. Why on earth would you want to thicken this good soup....oh well..

Restaurant-Style Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
To us Prime Rib is the king of roasts and we enjoy it a few times a year. This method is excellent - unforunately not all agree, but it works for us. Thank you for giving others a very good method for cooking this wonderful cut of beef.

Carly's Salmon En Papillote (In Paper)

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
This is my favorite way to cook salmon and can easily be adjusted for one person. My husband only likes his salmon broiled or baked but this I much prefer. Highly recommend this method and recipe.

Pineapple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
kudos to the contributor because this is a lovely moist cake. For our tastes we prefer to use either grated lemon or orange rind because artificial flavoring, especially lemon, takes away the fresh taste. Actually orange rind seems to marry better with pineapple.

Orange Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
This is a very easy little cake and find that freshly grated lemon rind is better than lemon extract. Complaints here that it only serves 6 - just reading the ingredients tells you it is not a large cake. Luckily I own a small bundt pan (there are only 2 of us) which is ideal for a cake such as this. Please do not substitute margarine for butter and do cream very, very well and you should produce a nicely textured and flavorful cake.

New England Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
I wish I could give this cake a 5 star review but, unfortunately, it just isn't nearly as good as I expected. Am rating it as above on ease of preparation but, to me, it does not compare to my regular one that is made by the creaming method. This tends to be a heavy cake so if you like that then go for it.

Blueberry Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Oh so nice and easy and good but needs some flavoring so I like to add about 2 tsps. of lemon rind. This recipe also works for raspberries - frozen or fresh.

Curried Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
We really like this soup and the fact that it has so few ingredients makes it even more appealing, but we do prefer it a bit spicier so add some hot pepper flakes and grated fresh ginger (this is to suit our taste buds ). Always serve with some Greek yoghurt on top[
